Today during nap I whipped up this little box pouch
It turned out great... except it's tiny. lol. Someone should help me out and post a chart for sizes of rectangles to cut for various sizes of box pouches. It just boggles my mind. Ok I think after this afternoon's experience I might be able to figure out how to make a larger, more usable box pouch. I've made these ones which are lined and usable for small toiletries/makeup/small embroidery kit. But I wanted a larger one to use for the Sewing Summit for my toiletries.
I used a re-usable bag from HomeGoods and left this unlined. I finished the seams inside with a piece of grosgrain ribbon folded in half (I pressed it in half using my iron on a medium setting). I really like this pouch even at the tiny 6" long that it is... not even long enough for pencils is it? haha. I used bits of the handle from the existing bag as pull tabs on either end. It came together in less than half an hour. For anyone as clueless as me (or even for myself in the future) the zipper was 10" and the fabric started at 9.5" x 11"
I guess I'll have to get a longer zipper and give it a try with the other side of that bag! Allie will surely have fun with this little guy; she always does!
